months ago this week, a top to bottom overhaul of u.s. health care, an overhaul that presidents dating back to teddy roosevelt have contemplated, debated, or attempted. six months ago, it was sign into law by president obama. today as you may have seen live here on cnn, the president talking about provisions of that law that come into force this week. this is the first of that health care bill. it's what the white house calls a patients' bill of rights. he's just about the only democrat who is going to use health and reform in the same sentence because the reason has to do with the calendar. we're 40 days away from the elections where every single house seat and 37 senate seats are up for grabs. voters are split to say the least. 40% of americans favor reform, 56% oppose it. there are some tricks to that poll because the 56% oppose, some oppose because it didn't go far enough. most say it's too liberal, but a sizable chunk says it doesn't go far enough. when we ask which party can handle the issue better, it's a dead heat. all of this forms a backdrop to the president's visit to a fami

was showing us how he thinks, and letting people who aren't in his camp ask the questions and they were good ones. that's "hardball" for now. thanks for being with us. tomorrow night the one and only bill mohr here on "hardball." right now it's time for "the ed show" with ed schultz. >>> good evening, americans, and welcome to "the ed show." tonight, live from the nation's capital, washington, d.c. these stories hitting my hot buttons and on the table at this hour. well, here comes the tan man and his republican cronies, they're ready to roll out their new contract with america's billionaires. my commentary on that. >>> plus, reaction from majority leader in the house, steny hoyer. he's with me off of the top tonight in just a moment. >>> senate minority leader, mitch mcconnell, i think this guy ought to watch his back. i think he's about to get waterlooed by tea party king makemaker senator tim demint. >>> christine o'donnell admitted she dabbled in witchcraft and once had a picnic on a satanic altar soaked in blood? am i reading this correctly? what were they have done with barack obama if
the line? >> the fbi has long used them as an example, has long had resources devoted to both. i will tell you going back to 2007 and 2008, they have had to devote increasing resources to this domestic extremist. we've seen cases, we've seen arrests in places like michigan as a result of those resources. >> bart, there's two big issues in your piece. number one, these groups, militia groups that have spread up under the patriot banner, if you will, correct me if i'm mischaracterizing it. then the lone wolfs, people who radicalized themselves and share information on the internet. one of them is the holocaust museum shooter. you say in your reporting, i made phone calls to verify this, that he shot the guard in the holocaust museum, but they found that he wanted to kill david axelrod, the president's top adviser. >> that's absolutely right. he considered a number of targets and he thought the president, himself, was too hard to get to. in his world view the jews ran everything, obama was a puppet on what he called his jew owners. in that sense axelrod was a more valuable target to him than

strategy. thank you very much for joining us. >> my pleasure, thank you. >> president obama is quoted as saying, this is a direct quote from the book. this needs to be a plan about how we're going to hand off and get out of afghanistan. then he repeatedly, apparently, pushed his top military advisors for an exit plan and they didn't give it it him. does this in a way summarize the dilemma overall. the in fighting in afghanistan? >> it does. people seem apparently shock that there's infighting in the white house. and i would be disappointed if there wasn't. this is a badly flawed strategy. it has a number of holes in it. not least of which is it's not properly resourced. if you were really serious about standing up a functioning nation state in afghanistan, which is our professed goal, you can't do it with even 100,000 troops. you need far more troops and to be there for a very, very long time. >> that's exactly what general petraeus said and i'll ask our graphic folks to skip ahead to the quote from general petraeus from this book. he apparently said to the president, "you have to rec

pensions were rewards of for a long work, and we used to regulate labor markets for companies. the retirement age, the existence of retirement age in our society is a function of decisions, both of increased productivity in the last century and decisions we made about allocating leisure. much of the leisure we chose to take from increased productivity went into shorter workweeks, went into longer vacations, earlier than in the last century, before say the 1950's. after the 1940's or so, much of the increased leisure went into what we call retirement, a time of non-work. we created this institution. it is malleable to some extent. it is also terribly important. the yearly retirement story is interesting. it begins to some extent with the unions very successfully negotiating 30-year and out early retirement options, and many of the unions that have defined benefits in many of the businesses agreed to early retirement provisions that served the purpose of on the one hand, rewarding workers for long-term service, and two, turning over the labor force. i say that because the flip s
are now learning that more than 60% of u.s. pipelines are aging, and according to the ntsb putting countless lives at risk. trace gallagher has more live from our west coast newsroom, trace. >> reporter: i've got to tell you, megyn the more we look into this the more concerning this gets, five days after the san bruno pipe explosion and we still have no idea what the exact cause was. the ntsb saying, look around the country. there could be thousands, maybe tens of thousands of pipes that are in the same condition the san bruno pipe was in. remember, if you want to look at these pictures, the san bruno pipes were all put in in the 1950s. this is 1948, look at the hillsides, the area, there are very few subdivisions put in here. they were all put in by the 1950s. now we'll show you almost of the same picture of what it looks like today, you'll get a better example. look at the sprawl. on top of all of those gas lines that were put in 50 years ago, and keep in mind that for a metal pipe 50 years is about the life expectancy, look at the sprawl in the same area. all those pipes that we
the last several decades. that's it's what has got us into this bankrupt position. >> and what does this say about international intervention? do you want to go down that road, mr. candidate, from alaska. some reason, democrats and focus on the money in just a moment. for some reason the democrats have allowed the conservatives to outmaneuver them when it comes to fiscal responsibility and that whole conversation. keep in mind, i'll say this every night before the rally and every night before the election, we got into this mess under their watch. we got under this mess and damn near went bankrupt because of the hundreds and billions of dollars that we spent on a war and nobody had any idea how we were going to pay for it. these masses tax cuts for the superrich in this country is what has got us where we are. and the congress rubber stamped every dime the former president demanded for the war in iraq, and voted over and over again for the bush tax cuts, and cut deals. i wonder how ben nelson feels about that $18 million he got for homeland security as the they bought his vote so he
, whether they actually believe there's a moral equivalency there or they don't and they're using it for political purposes. either way, whichever it is, this is not just bad domestic politics for the president, and it is and they know it, for a variety of reasons, including it takes him off the economy and divides him from democrats, which is a big problem on a range of issues, but i almost resist talking about this as a political issue. this is a national security crisis. both of these issues are. you have general petraeus getting involved in a domestic matter of the first amendment issue shows the extraordinary extent to which people in the military are -- men and women overseas think this is a big enough deal, and to have it to be brought into domestic politics and inflamed by republicans, again, out of principle, maybe, out of political purposes maybe, whatever the reason is really a national and international tragedy. and unfortunately the president, for a variety of reasons, is too weak on his own to deal with it. >> i think you're right. howard? >> well, sitting in the pre
as. i see it as an opportunity. i'm going to have to face that same hostility in the u.s. senate. they are no different than some of the people i will be serving with this november. if i'm afraid to face the liberal media, how can i earn the voters' trust to face the liberals in washington, d.c. and stand up for what is right? >> sean: a lot has been reported on. we had karl rove on this program last night and the things that he has said. let me run some of the tape and get your reaction. >> this was about mike castle's bad votes. it does conservatives little good to support candidates who while they may be conservative in their public statements, do not events the characteristics of rectitude and truthfulness and sincerity and character the voters are looking for. and we'll see if she can answer these questions. she sure as heck didn't answer them thus far in the campaign. >> sean: your reaction? >> we did answer them on our website. i'm hoping that maybe it is just the fog of war that hasn't cleared yet. i want to give him the benefit of the doubt that when all this seattle --
? >> luckily, we have cut the barnicle with some chris jansing and mr. dan senor is with us and margaret carlson, bloomberg news political columnist and washington editor of the week, good to have you with us. >> good to be with you. >> dan, you were in iraq within weeks of the invasion. >> vi day as you said to me earlier. i was underwhelmed by the speech. i thought it was lacking any context about where we go from here. i think the elephant in the room for many iraqis, and for many men and women in our military is will we go back? will we ever have to go back? how do we prevent ever going back? saying we're leaving and the end of it doesn't seem like sufficient. i think there are two scenarios for iraq. one is that it basically shrinks and becomes a glorified province of iran and gets swallowed up by iran or, two, we abandon the iraqis so much and they feel so alone that the only way they can defend themselves is they built an army of saddam proportions something of one former general said to me, a military that not only can play home games but can play away games, too. that is destabi
in one million foreigners a year into our country legally. nobody can match us. nobody can come close in the entire world. the united states opens our doors to a million people to follow the rules and come into this country. yes, you can call it compassion, but it is random compassion. who said these people, determined by the white house, are more deserving of compassion than these people over here because we've got, according to most of the estimates, between 12 million and 20 million of these people in our country. so, why -- who decides and who picks those 17,000? and are we starting a policy that everybody that's awaiting a hearing in a immigration court will just be excused? is that the new policy? so 17,000 is just a start? i don't know, we don't have an answer to that. but the real question we have to be concerned about is, who made the executive branch so independent to operate that they can shut down things like drilling in the gulf and turn loose people who have pending court cases on their say-so? without any consultation or action by the legislative branch of the governmen
with no name, newt gingrich is with us. welcome back. >> good to be with you. >> sean: nobody wants to be seen with barack obama. nobody wants to be seen with nancy pelosi. more democrats are running ads against health care than for health care this is about a republican civil war, if you listen to the media. >> the news media will do everything it can for the next 47 days to try to talk about anything except 9.6% . -- unemployment. trillions in debt. disaster of the democratic party's health bill. the failure of the democratic either in the gulf of mexico with the bp oil disaster. the elite media will try turn every return right, if republicans are still standing on election day whether it is christine o'donnell or it is angle in nevada or it is rand paul in kentucky or you name it, they are gonna win. and they are gonna win for a simple reason. the obama democrats have been grinding the economy into the dust. leaving americans unemployed. we just had the highest number in poverty released today. i think in years. we have the highest number of -- >> sean: one in seven americans in poverty now
environmental disaster in u.s. history. we're getting a closerook now at the infamous device that what could reveal what caused the disaster back in april. the failed blowout preventer,ist's called, ncuw in federal custody, put on display in new orleans today. chad rogers now with more of the -- first time we've seen it -- out of the water up close, right, chad? oh. >> the first time we get a feeling of how big this thing really is -- really wa when it was down there. the barge bringing up the river. preventer.t the lower marine riser package. they put the kpap on that thing. or at least tried to put the cap on it? i have a picture here. here is the entire blowout p preventer. up there, all the way down. let me get it bigger. these are guys here. one, two, three, three men right there. and so this thing is just so much bigger than you think -- five stories oulr so, it would seem like there. there's the first video images of what we have on shore, on land. people getting video from it, on shore, pictures, sending it back to us. literally, the top of the riser, ca preventerhe blowout capped th
of taking over the u.s. senate this year? tonight, we get the results of the big tea party challenge of christine o'donnell to possibly win the republican nomination for senate over mike castle. if she does, it will be the eighth time in this political season that a far right of center candidate beat out the favorite for a gop senate nomination. are conservatives ready to dump anyone who even wants to talk to democrats? we'll look at all the big races in seven states tonight and the district of columbia and what's at stake at the top of the show. >>> also, there's a great political battle brewing over taxes. my question, who wins if congress fails to stop this tax hike if nothing gets done? who wins then? who wins if the tax cuts are extended for all of us? who wins in november? >>> and harry reid exchanges tweets with lady gaga over gays openly serving in the military. he says he'll try to get a vote this week on ending don't ask, don't tell. could this be about the election? why not just get rid of don't ask, don't tell, period. we'll be back at midnight tonight, 9:00 on the west c
word. >> one we should all use today. >> like turning starbucks products into gold. >> or sand. >> i think it is. another great story from the west coast we will be talking about in a little bit. bill clinton, somehow managing to get right smack-dab in the middle of that california gubernatorial campaign. he's not even trying. this guy, jerry brown and bill clinton, these guys just hate each other and impacting that race. >> here's my guess, although bill clinton is now in the middle of that race spiritually, my guess is physically, corporately, he may not be at jerry brown's side campaigning on his behalf before november 2nd. >> jerry brown, i forgot this, he refused to endorse bill clinton in 1992, after clinton had locked down the nomination. >> it's true. >> jerry brown, the first guy to bring up whitewater. jerry brown, a guy that bill clinton, just to set the back story, remember the '92 debate, where clinton gets read -- how dare you attack my wife? before we get to the news. >> it's primary day -- >> hold on. i got you guys some gifts, really quickly. >> oh. >> tuscaloosa. th
